Umeboshi or Buai

Posted by billzant on June 16, 2009

Recently Gee discussed umeboshi plums (http://mastering-health.com/blogs/gee/umeboshi). I had found these plums, as well as umeboshi vinegar, at Emporium and the Japanese supermarket Sukhumvit Soi33, I think. Gee’s article made me think that there might be an equivalent in Thailand so I checked the local market. And there they were – buai บ๊าย. At 25 baht it is slightly cheaper than paying 200 baht for the plums or 450 for the vinegar.

Addendum

I have recently had flu issues based on ageing and hormones. This made me vulnerable to flu in the rainy season, and I have taken to making supersoup if I get wet. This supersoup includes the Chinese plums – buai.
